Don't Know Why Guitar Lesson

OK, let’s get into the lesson. It’s pretty tricky at times so really take your time with it. This song is incredibly tastefully written, and you can tell by the sophisticated chords that it has a lot of jazz influence in it. One thing that’s very cool about it is that there’s a descending chromatic line that blends neatly into the chords and runs right through the verse, it’s really great writing.
